About Moruga

The district of Moruga lies on the central south coast of Trinidad. Oil and fishing are the area’s main economies for some residents.

Moruga is home to the Moruga Hill Rice - a strain of American Hill Rice rediscovered in Trinidad in 2016. Originally grown by African slaves, this strain of rice was thought extinct before this occurrence.

The Moruga Scorpion Pepper, one of the hottest pepper varieties in the world also takes its name from this region.
